Jays lose to Twins in extras, Anderson leaves game — Blue Jays Notebook”

Buxton instead showed off his power.

Byron Buxton matched Smoak's long ball with one of his own in the bottom of the 10th, a game-winning solo homer to left field that gave the Twins a 3-2 win, and Toronto its 15th walkoff loss of the year.

One night earlier, Eddie Rosario sent the Twins home victorious with a two-run homer in the 10th inning against the San Diego Padres.

Trevor Hildenberger, the rookie who has deftly filled a need in the bullpen during the second half since his recall from Triple-A, recorded four outs until Hedges took him deep into the flowers behind the left-center field wall. No complaints, he's just been going out there, and tonight he walks off. Buxton, who also had a single, is now 9-for-17 with four home runs in his career against Toronto. "He's going to be a great, great player".

Anderson, who plans to reassess his finger on Friday, wouldn't go as far as to blame the baseballs for his blister but believed it was a culmination of the warmer, humid climate and the balls themselves. Buxton didn't miss on the 1-0 offering, sending it approximately 390 feet into the left field seats. And he wasn't just referring to Buxton's dramatic upper-deck punch. "The last time we saw them at our place, and we actually held him in check until that at-bat. We go out there and try to have quality at-bats and keep the line moving".

Ervin Santana gave the Twins six scoreless innings, with only three hits and one walk allowed while striking out seven, but manager Paul Molitor pulled him after 93 pitches. Before Wednesday, the Twins were in the second wild-card playoff spot behind the Yankees.

Toronto's Justin Smoak had tied the game with a two-out homer in the top of the ninth off Twins closer Matt Belisle.

But the Twins wasted a bunch of later opportunities to put the game away, with leadoff singles in the fourth, sixth and seventh against Lamet that didn't translate to runs. "Santos has been pitching great, too, I think it was just a little slider that just kind of spun there".

One night after securing five outs on 16 pitches in a 3-1 extra-inning win over the Padres, Belisle blew just his second save in nine chances since all-star Brandon Kintzler was traded. He is 12-7 on the season with a 3.94 ERA.

Since being acquired from the Blue Jays, Anderson provided the Jays with six plus innings in each of his starts.

Blue Jays: OF Steve Pearce was out of the lineup again as he deals with back soreness.
